|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Kyle Arnoldy joined The Holyoke Enterprise staff this week, filling the reporting position previously held by Chris Lee.
He’ll be covering a wide range of news for the Enterprise, including sports, City Council, hospital board, community events and more.
A 2007 Sterling High School graduate, Arnoldy, 24, served as sports editor at The Green River Star in Green River, Wyo. for the last 10 months. He was head of the one-man sports staff at the weekly paper and also covered community activities and school board and city council meetings.
Arnoldy said he is glad to be returning to Northeast Colorado, and Enterprise publisher Brenda Brandt feels he is a good fit for the Enterprise team, which also includes Darci Tomky and Ashley Sullivan.
Arnoldy completed the journalism program at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling and then earned his bachelor’s degree in journalism and technical communication from Colorado State University in Fort Collins a year ago. His degree involved a concentration in public relations and a minor in business administration.
While a CSU student, Arnoldy completed an internship at the Longmont Safety and Justice Center, where he wrote press releases and feature stories for the departments and managed social media.
Arnoldy’s family still resides in Sterling. He is engaged to his high school sweetheart Jodi Beardsley, and they’re planning a June 22 wedding.
When asked about hobbies, Arnoldy is quick to say he loves all things sports. He also enjoys concerts and disc golf.
While at NJC, Arnoldy was a gym supervisor, working with children to increase physical fitness and health awareness. He also coached middle school football and basketball.
Arnoldy’s first day at the Enterprise was Monday, Jan. 14, and he plans to move to the community later this month.
Admitting that he loves Northeast Colorado, Arnoldy said he loves that every team out here is a rival, making for solid competition in most every game. He looks forward to following the Dragons and meeting community members in his other reporting duties, as well.
